WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The Purdue women's tennis team claimed a 7-0 victory over Toledo on Sunday on the Basham Courts inside the Schwartz Tennis Center.

"This was a great weekend overall," head coach Laura Glitz said. "The team competed well, played hard and hustled so I was pleased with our performance. There are things we need to improve upon, and this week we will keep working to get better as a program."

Purdue (2-0) opened the match by sweeping the doubles point for the second time this weekend. Junior Bhavani Tirumurti and freshman Imogen Golder defeated Silvia Carvajal and Melissa Reynolds 8-3 at No. 3. Senior Michelle Sammons and sophomore Jennifer Rabot clinched the point with an 8-2 victory over Martina Wodzinksi and Maha Guirguis at No. 1. Sophomores Remi Martin and Anna Dushkina completed the sweep at No. 2 by beating Nadia Zoubareva and Ashley Frey 8-3.

Sophomore Kay Kay Magi earned the first win in singles play as she put together a dominating 6-1, 6-0 victory over Jessica Azoulay at No. 6. Golder continued her perfect start in collegiate singles by dispatching of Carvajal 6-2, 6-0 at No. 5. The match was clinched at No. 2 when Rabot completed a 6-0, 6-2 victory over Guirguis.

"This win gives us a lot of confidence," Rabot said. "A win is a win, but being able to finish an opponent 7-0 is really a confidence-building victory. It also backs up the fact that we've been working really hard, and will keep us doing what we've been doing. I think it's also good for the new people to experience such a good start."


 

 

Dushkina continued the Boilermakers' roll with a hard-fought 6-1, 6-1 defeat of Zoubareva at No. 4 before Tirumurti outlasted Frey 6-2, 6-4 at No. 3. Sammons completed the sweep in the last match left on court when she defeated Wodzinski 7-5, 7-6 (1) at No. 1.

The Boilermakers have yet to drop a set this season and have recorded two straight 7-0 wins for the first time since blanking Butler and DePaul on Jan. 28 and Feb. 4, 2007. With the loss, Toledo drops to 1-1 this season.

Purdue returns to action Saturday with a doubleheader. The Boilermakers take on Cleveland State at 9 a.m. ET before facing Illinois State at 4 p.m.
